I got the AC Delco one from RockAuto. Was very cheap and got here quick. It looked really hard but only took ten minutes. I still need to oil it though but I already put it back together.

Me and another local guy have had issue with the lock coming out which we thought was impossible once place inside and turned as prescribed.

I've put the key in and turned it and pulled and key with lock attached comes out.
Any solution or tip?

The only way I can imagine this happening is if the brass locking keeper was installed incorrectly or not installed at all. I almost put it in wrong on mine, I didn't realize you have to push it in pretty hard untill it clicks and snaps into place. Either that or maybe the whole locking mechanism wasn't pushed all the way inside the cap? Do you have a picture of what it looks like after it came out?

Don't have pic but if it happens again I will. I followed the directions to the letter and its keyed correctly as the key works great! I'll try to push it in further and turn it to ensure it's seated properly.

Does anyone know if this same install technique works on the lock cylinder for the glove box? Ours was missing and we ordered a new one. It "appears" to be the same setup. Just not 100% sure.

I think it does. I believe it uses the same cut positions as well.

make sure you have a spring under the brass keeper as well.

someone reported having a bad cap in the last couple of months, I would make sure there is a groove inside the cap that will capture the brass keeper.

I have the tumblers all correct and the lock works. When I insert the brass piece it doesn't. The brass piece does not click into place. Then when I put the key in the lock will not work. It seems that the brass is preventing the key from going all the way down. Any ideas?

Nevermind.
I just found out that it helps if you put the brass piece in the CORRECT direction.

Thanks, man... had it done in ten minutes, with most of the time spent cutting open the G.D. bags

I bought mine from Maureen at Rogers Chevrolet, arrived quickly. Thank you Maureen.
I got mine all ready to go, it took about 25 minutes, the hardest part was the brass keeper, I had to use some force to push it in, other than that the next step is to install the clip onto the fuel door.

Rockauto.com still lists the 22790846 but their price now shows $57.79 Good golly. Must be the newer number. Wonder what the difference is.
